President Barack Obama was the champion of deportation as he deported or removed the most legal and illegal immigrants than any other President before him. A total 2.4 million were deported under the Obama administration from fiscal 2009 to 2014, including a record 435,000 in 2013, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of the data. However, President Trump has promised mass deportation under his presidency and deportation lawyer Gail Seeram can help you avoid removal from the U.S.
For fiscal year 2015, ICE apprehended 406,595 individuals nationwide and conducted a total of 462,463 removals (compared to year 414,481 in 2014). U.S. Border Patrol reported 337,117 apprehensions nationwide in 2015, compared to 486,651 in FY 2014.
Deportation lawyer Gail Seeram recommends that any noncitizen that is placed in removal or deportation proceedings exercise his/her right to see an immigration judge (do not waive a judicial hearing). There are many forms of relief under the immigration laws that allow noncitizens to remain in the United States and avoid deportation or removal from the U.S. Some forms of relief include cancellation of removal, asylum, withholding of removal, fraud waiver, prosecutorial discretion, adjustment of status and many more.
The Immigration Law Offices of Gail S. Seeram offers the following five tips to avoid deportation or removal proceeding:
1 – If you are a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) with ANY type of criminal arrest for a misdemeanor or felony offense (even if not convicted), then speak with an immigration lawyer before traveling outside the U.S., before applying to renew green card or before applying for U.S. citizenship.
2 – If you have no legal status in the U.S., then do not drive. Note, Department of Motor Vehicle records are linked to Department of Homeland Security and a routine traffic stop can lead to an immigration hold if your immigration status is checked.
3 – If you are a noncitizen (do not have U.S. citizenship), then do not register to vote or vote in the U.S. and do not make any false claims to being a U.S. citizen.
4 – If you are at risk for deportation or removal because you have no legal status in the U.S. or have a prior removal order, then do not go to your local immigration office without an attorney.
5 – If you have no legal status in the U.S., then avoid taking Greyhound Bus or Amtrak as immigration border patrol frequently stops and checks the immigration status of passengers on these types of transportation services.
